The neurology department is one of the smaller teams at the Trust and is made up of three consultants and two clinical nurse specialists in Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s.

The department has two main arms to its work:

  • Providing an outpatient service for neurological patients
  • Providing acute neurological consultations for inpatients being admitted to hospital through the emergency department – by diagnosing impaired function of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles

The Trust does not have inpatient facilities for patients with neurological conditions at present. Patients who are diagnosed with severe and complex neurological conditions in outpatients or in hospital are transferred to the Queen Elizabeth Neurosciences Centre in Birmingham.
